The Southampton Boat Show
I would have loved to have gone to this, but seeing as I don't drive and the website for me isn't easy to navigate, the nearest I will be getting to go is on the bloody TV! This is so unfair, and when I rang the helpline, they said that they hadn't been given any travel information apart from what was on the site! Although you can take the train from Waterloo, or National Express.
So if you havn't got a car, you can't go! Come on guys, not everyone drives and has to use public transport. Why are you not providing for this, the working class like as day out as well.
St. Michael's Church
St. Michael's Church is the oldest church in Southampton. The original church was built in 1070, and the central Norman tower still remains, with its massive stone blocks and rounded arches.
The church was originally cross-shaped, but in the late 14th Century the North Aisle was widened. In the 15th Century the South Aisle was similarly widened and the West Door rebuilt.
A spire was constructed at this time, although the present one dates from 1878. The last major alterations were made in 1826-8 when the Nave was heightened and cast iron pillars installed. Some alteration was also made to the Chancel later in the 19th Century.
The stained glass is mostly recent, replacing that damaged by German bombing. The East Window depicts the five churches that were once within the old walled town. The West Window depicts St Michael slaying the dragon.
The church's brass lectern is the oldest in the country, dating back to 1350. It was moved here in 1940 from Holy Rood Church when that church was badly damaged by German bombs.
The cockerel at the top of the church spire is hollow and whenever any work is done to the spire, a note is placed inside the weathervane.
